Hi! It’s me, Lily!!
I hope you have had a great week. I know I’m going to have a great weekend, so I hope you do too!
I’m writing on this Friday even though this post goes up on Saturday because I won’t be here on Saturday. Today, we are staying at a hotel where my mom is speaking at a conference. It’s kind of close to our house, but mom and dad thought it would be fun to make it a family trip. I am so excited because I LOVE staying at hotels!! I think my mom wanted us to go because she and dad just went to New Orleans without us kids last weekend and she really missed us. She didn’t want to leave us again, so we get to stay at the hotel as a family. I think it will be really fun!
Today’s recipe is one we made a few weeks ago. It has chocolate and mint, and we thought it would be good to try out in case you’re looking for a green treat on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s called – Chocolate Ganache Mint Brownies. They are so delicious! There are 4 layers – brownies on the bottom, mint cream in the middle, chocolate ganache frosting and then Andes Mint Bits on top! Don’t they sound amazing? Well, they are! Just be careful with their delicious taste – you may gain some weight eating so many. 😉
If you like chocolate and mint I know you’ll love these brownies!
